Loaded Nachos

Loaded nachos are a great treat!  It’s also a great way to use up fiesta left overs!

 

Warm up the ground beef in the microwave (or cook fresh ground beef with the taco seasoning).  Spread tortilla chips over a plate and sprinkle with shredded cheese and microwave until the cheese is almost melted.  Spread the ground beef over the cheese and microwave for a few more seconds until the cheese is completely melted.  Use any ingredients you have in the house to load up the nachos.  I used fresh tomatoes, green chillies, red onion, guacamole, sour cream and finely diced jalapenos.

Pulled Pork Omelet

This pork is so good that you will be happy if there are left overs to enjoy the next day.  If you still have some after that, you may want to mix it up and not have another pulled pork sandwich.  So today for breakfast, I got creative!  I made an omelet with pulled pork, diced jalapeno and fresh cilantro.  It was delish!  If you have some cheddar cheese, that would also be amazing with that.

It was a very filling meal, so it’s definitely an indulgent weekend treat!

Eggs, I went with 3 because I had 3 left

A splash of water

Left over pulled pork

1/2 jalapeno, diced

a handful of fresh cilantro

Crack the eggs into a bowl and add a splash of water, it helps makes the omelet nice and fluffy.  Beat the eggs lightly with a fork or whisk.  Use butter or cooking spray in a skillet and melt over medium heat.  Pour in the eggs.  Meanwhile, dice the jalapeno in small pieces.  But, DON’T leave the skillet for too long because the eggs will cook quickly.  Actually, maybe dice the pepper first.  Use a spatula to gently lift an edge that has started to cook and tilt the pan to let uncooked eggs under to cook.  Keep that until the majority of the egg is set.  Once the egg is almost all set, place the pulled pork, jalapeno and cilantro down the center.  Gently fold the egg in half.  Let the omelet continue to cook briefly.  You can either slide the omelet out, or put a plate over the top and flip the skillet (that’s what I did because the top wasn’t as pretty!).
